"worshipping the state: how liberalism became our state religion," the title of my book is obviously all level in-your-face, makes a rather outlandish claim, first implies liberals worship the state and second that liberalism itself has become a kind of established religion. that brings us to an obvious set of questions. is this just overblown rhetoric to sell a book or is it true that liberalism really has become our established state religion? and liberals somehow do in fact worship the state? we can add on top of this what does it matter? what does it matter? let me begin with a last question first. what does it matter if liberalism is in fact a religion or at least functions like a religion? because it functions like one and in fact is a religion than christians and other opponents of the agenda of liberalism can litigate to disestablish i
